Art on Thursdays presents Shaken: Art that Rocked Audiences from the Renaissance to Today

Art on Thursdays presents Shaken: Art that Rocked Audiences from the Renaissance to Today Online

The history of art is filled with stories of paintings and sculptures that ruffled feathers and riled audiences. Sometimes artists intended to make a splash and sometimes they unintentionally fell into controversy. This program considers some of the biggest scandals in the art world in terms of audience reception and includes works such as Donatello’s David, Manet’s Luncheon on the Grass, and Sargent’s famous Madame X. Image: Edouard Manet. Luncheon on the Grass (detail), 1863. Musee D’Orsay.
